    Emo/post-hardcore legends The Used are still ticking things along in 2019 with the release of their first new song in two years, titled 'Blow Me', which features The Fever 333 frontman Jason Aalon Butler adding some menacing vocals to the track.

    It's the first taste of the band's upcoming eighth album, which they are currently working on as a follow up to 2017's The Canyon. It will also be the first record to be released on John Feldmann's record label Big Noise, who has produced five The Used records to date.

    'Blow Me' is a throwback to older material from The Used, which should please long-time fans of the band. Check it out below:

    Jason Aalon Butler had this to say on the opportunity of working with one of his favourite bands:

    “If I’m being honest, I’ve been a fan of [The Used] since the first single they put on an Atticus Clothing comp CD back in 2002. I heard Box Full Of Sharp Objects and thought, ‘This is it. This is the next step in heavier music with melodic sensibility.’

    “I loved it. I studied it. Then I met the man that produced it, John Feldmann. Loved him. Studied him. Then a couple of months ago I was asked by the band and John to sing on a track from the new album. They played me some songs and, no bullshit, I got that feeling I felt when I first heard Box Full on that comp 17 years ago. For any and all The Used fans; they’re back again. In a big fucking way.”

    John Feldmann is also stoked to have the band on his label after working with them in the studio for so long:

    “I couldn’t be more honoured or grateful to have one of my favourite bands of all time at my record label,” says John. “They are one of the most influential bands of the last 20 years and we are making a career-defining album at the minute.

    “They are one of the best live bands I’ve ever seen and Bert is quite possibly the best singer I’ve ever worked with. This has been a dream of mine since I met them in 2001.”
